Has anyone had direct comparison between the Z16 and Sphere PT poles? Is there much difference between the two or enough to justify the £1500 price difference at the moment.

My nephew had a sphere ( not the PT ) & a z16 at the same time this year, & as nice as the sphere felt it wasn't very strong & the replacement sections were extortionate, really extortionate !, indeed replacement sections for the Z16 ain't exactly cheap either. Imho the Z16 is a very nice pole & is ideal for commercials, where the sphere is predominantly a silver fish pole. I know they've beefed the sphere up with the PT, but I believe its only sections 4,5&6, & personally to fish commercials I would go for a Z16 & save myself £1500.
